Gingergrass disappoints those who don't drink soda for breakfast

Finally tried Gingergrass Saturday night. By far the best thing about this place is it's location across the street from Silverlake wine. (They sold us a chilled 1995 Kabinett Riesling from the Rheigau for $8.50 including tax - lovely stuff.) Sadly, the food was uniformly too sweet (they seem to rely too heavily on hoisin sauce) and generally lacking in fresh chile heat or other savory/spicy flavors. We much prefer Song (yes, I know it's Thai) for the same types of dishes and flavor combinations, but much better executed. I'd be delighted if Gingergrass improved, but won't return for dinner again. Perhaps for a lunchtime bowl of Pho when the rains return.
